Things I really like: basketball, my dog, watching basketball with my dog, and getting to hear rad new records like Timberwolf’s Íkaros. It’s beautiful, smart, engaging and just an all-round warm, encompassing debut. Read my review* of Íkaros for Rolling Stone here.
*one line that didn’t make it in: ‘It’s a record that’ll have you saying ‘fuck Bon over’ quick smart’.
Converge are brutal and amazing and I wrote about their new album The Dusk In Us for Rolling Stone right here. You should read it. And also listen to the album. Because it’s mental. And awesome.
I wrote about the solo debut from Jeremy Neale, erstwhile Velociraptor frontman/pop impresario for Rolling Stone. You can read about it right here.
Hint: the album’s really, really, really good
Dean Ray huh. Dude came runner up in Australia’s X factor, had a big pop debut, seemingly got screwed over by Sony, then ended up here, with his first indy release. read what I think about it here over at Rolling Stone.
Check it out, I wrote about the fun and sunny debut album from Australian brothers Lime Cordiale… check it out over here at Rolling Stone.
Nice. I got to write about The Front Bottoms, the sort of band that hairy emotional dudes like me really dig. Find out how much right here over at Rolling Stone.
I hung out with the inimitable Tash Sultana backstage as she made her U.S. TV debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers and wrote about it for Rolling Stone. It was awesome. Read what happened right here. … and watch her actual performance below
